A national association of innovative & entrepreneurial
behavioral healthcare organizations
focused on the development of C-suite executives.


Welcome to mhca!

As a member of this exclusive association of entrepreneurial behavioral health organizations, you have access to a variety of invaluable resources and benefits to help you and your organization excel in a rapidly changing healthcare environment.

If you’re like most mhca members, the number one reason you joined was to develop valuable connections with trustworthy peers. Our deliberately small membership and frequent engagement opportunities make mhca uniquely suited to this goal. Here are a few resources to help you get plugged in and stay connected over time.

Get Connected

Yes, the sessions are great – mhca conferences feature nationally-recognized speakers and peer presenters who provide insights on emerging issues and industry trends; but, the most valuable learning opportunities are often the result of informal hallway conversations. Before you head to our next conference, spend a few minutes looking over the Member Directory and Conference Registration List, think about what you want to learn from others, and jot down a few questions.

Call for Conference Session Proposals

Presenting at a quarterly conference provides opportunities to collaborate with colleagues as co-presenters, receive feedback on research or developing projects, share ideas and build relationships with others interested in your topic, and increase your visibility within the association and the industry. Presenters’ names and organizations are publicized in online and printed conference materials over a period of four to five months, which can result in significant exposure. If you are interested in presenting, fill out the session proposal form below or contact Dale Shreve at This email address is being protected from spambots.

mhca publishes industry information and member news on our website (link to news page), on social media (link to Twitter feed), in our Monthly Minute e-newsletter (link to e-news page), and in the mhca Report (Link to newsletter page), a quarterly newsletter that is mailed to member CEOs and posted to our website. Reading these publications is a great way to find out more about your fellow members and identify opportunities to connect. Providing a guest article on a topic of interest to your fellow members is a great way to position yourself as a subject matter expert and invite others to initiate conversations that play to your strengths. If you'd like to submit an article, contact Lonnie Parizek at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..




When you have a question, the mhca ListServer provides a quick and easy way to reach a large group of trusted peers. By posting and responding to questions on the mhca ListServer, you can begin connecting with your fellow members and then follow-up with them at quarterly conferences. mhca has three lists: a General List and Marketing List for member CEOs and staff, and a CEO List restricted to member CEOs only (No vendors or general public are eligible to join any of these lists). By default, all member CEOs are added to both the General List and the CEO List. Other staff may join the other lists by visiting the ListServer. Once you subscribe to a list, you will have the ability to send and receive emails with others in the mhca community on those lists. ListServer emails can be sent via your email client software, like Outlook (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). All members subscribed to a list can review and respond to emails from that list. While all replies to a ListServer email are accessible to those subscribed to the list, members sometimes choose to respond to sensitive questions via a private email.



Social Media

mhca follows members online, and we tweet, like and share relevant information nearly every day. A quick post or reply on one of our social media sites is an easy way to reach out, share interesting articles, offer a compliment, or ask a question. Social media can be a great starting point, especially for introverts; but to create a meaningful connection, you’ll eventually need to meet in person. Before heading to a conference, think about which online contacts you’d like to know better and invite them meet up for a cup of coffee.
